AGOS Claimer of the Week: Fantasy flies home at Oaklawn

Horse Racing Claimer of the Week at Flyer’s Fantasy was close up early, took the lead before entering the stretch and went on to defeat a field of $5,000 claimers in the first race at Oaklawn last Friday afternoon. The mare has been named the Claimer of the Week. Returning $26.40 to her backers, Flyer’s Fanatsy was ridden by Alex Birzer and stopped the timer in 1:04.91 for the 5 ½ furlongs. Trained by Hall of Famer Jack Van Berg, the 6 year old has now won 9 career races. The daughter of Early Flyer has finished in the money (top three finishers) 28 times from 49 races. Owned by Jerry Caroom, Flyer’s Fantasy has now accumulated $100,000 in career earnings.
